SAW 2013 Nearly there…

We are currently in what you might term the ‘Phoney SAW’, having haeld our preview of Spring Farm Arts participants’ work on Sunday – tea, cake and bubbly. Bright lights and glowing pictures inside, rain and clouds outside. Another two ‘phoney’ days to be open, then we get synchronised with eveyone else on the Saturday.

New work on the wall

Somerset Art Weeks 2013 is fast approaching for the 100 or so venues that will participate in what Kevin McCloud of Grand Designs calls ‘ a much-loved and annual event’.

However for the four of us Spring Farm Arts participators it’s approaching even faster! Not because we’re in some kind of alternatively-timed universe but because we made a cock-up in our current leaflet and we advertise ourselves as starteing on September 15th, where the rest of the county starts on 21st September.

So, making a virtue out of necessity, we launch on Sunday next with an Arty Tea Party, with cake, tea if you must but obviously something more alcoholic too.

Now I know daughter Nancy Farmer is coping with two exhibitions at once so I guess I’d better have a stab at putting some of my new for 2013 artwork onscreen.

I’m starting with one of my favourite topics – boats: some inspired by nearby scenes, others are from further afield (asea?)
